As you can see---we have a FULL schedule! Poland is 8 hours ahead of us, so it will definitely be an adjustment for us.
If you're a praying person---here are a few things you could pray for:
- An unusual amount of energy to make it through the day and be able to serve the Polish people with an open heart
- Unity among our team
- Focus on Jesus (right now I have a lot on my mind--graduate classes, school, home, personal issues---I'm finding it tough to really focus on this trip)
As I wind down the evening, I have a few verses that are really sticking with me tonight I'd like to share:
"You see, we don't go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, 'Let there be light in the darkness,' has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves." (1 Corinthians 4:5-7)
I will have access to a laptop/iPod, so I'm hoping we'll have a wireless connection so I can digest the trip through blog posts. Check back for more updates!
